McLeod takes gold in 110m hurdles

Omar McLeod became the first Jamaican to win gold in the 110m hurdles with a dominant performance in the final on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old posted a time of 13.05s, with Orlando Ortega of Spain taking silver with 13.17s, while Dimitri Bascou of France grabbed bronze with 13.24s.

Cuba-born defector Ortega was not clear to compete for Spain until the end of July, when he got the good news on his birthday.
